Kovalev Mocks Stevenson: "Call Me Kryptonite Kovalev"

By Ryan Burton

WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev (23-0-1, 21KOs) continues to hold out hope that he will be able to unify titles with WBC light heavyweight champion Andonis Stevenson.

The two fighters fought on the same card on November 30th in Quebec City, Canada. Kovalev stopped Ismayl Sillakh in two rounds while Stevenson stopped Tony Bellew in six. Kovalev fought in the co-featured fight and said that he made a point to watch Stevenson's fight which immediately followed. 

"He did a good job but I didn't see anything special. He calls himself Superman," Kovalev said with a smile.

Kovalev's manager Egis Klimas said that effective immediately they have a new nickname for Kovalev.

"We are changing Sergey's nickname. Instead of Sergey "Krusher" Kovalev it is going to be Sergey "Kryptonite" Kovalev," Klimas told BoxingScene.com.

Klimas also said that Kovalev will remain inn the light heavyweight division for the foreseeable future. He said Kovalev doesn't have any problems making weight so there is no reason to move up.

"I am comfortable at 175. I make the weight easy," Kovalev stated. 

"He will fight any cruiserweight at 175 though," Klimas chimed in.

Eventually this is turning into a pathetic thread... The reason is obvious.

[QUOTE=sergey.smith;14059189][B]Everybody[/B] knows Klemas - Kovalev manager is a wannabe who is a convicted felon who spent over 5 years in a US prison.[/QUOTE] No they don't or at least I don't. He's from Lithuania - wouldn't he have been deported?…
